Minappa Sunnundalu is a popular traditional Andhra sweet made with Black Gram dal. These Urad Dal Ladoos are very easy to make and are very healthy.
Just like you have Maa Laddo made with roasted chana dal, these sunnundalu are from Andhra made with urad dal. Since urad dal is very healthy, adding jaggery to these ladoos make these a power packed healthy option.
I have quite a few variations of these laddos as we often make them. Since these are so easy to make, you can make these for any festival. While Rava Ladoo is our all time fixed laddo for Deepavali, we also wanted to make a few more ladoos this festival season.
We are starting the final week of BM#105 and while I had so many ideas of other themes I wanted to make, I ended up not making those. So I decided I should at least do this at a last minute cooking. So you will get to read about some easy to make Deepavali Dishes!
